Annual Reports

The Taxpayer Advocacy Panel (TAP) is a Federal Advisory Committee consisting of citizen volunteers from across the nation. We are a diverse group of ordinary citizens from around the country who possess a sense of civic duty, patriotism, and belief in an effective and well-regarded taxation system. As TAP members, we volunteer our time and energy to improve IRS services and taxpayer satisfaction.
It is with great enthusiasm that we present our 2019 Annual Report.
In 2019, we committed ourselves to reach out to taxpayers to identify issues and concerns that taxpayers face in complying with their tax obligations. Our project committees reviewed the issues and developed recommendations for IRS consideration.
The 2019 TAP Annual Report highlights our key recommendations to improve IRS customer service and summarizes our key accomplishments and activities, including the 224 recommendations submitted to the IRS in 2019.
